On September 26, 2003 The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Imam Earl Abdulmalik Mohammed, the national emissary of Imam W.D. Mohammed, who resigned last month as head of the American Society of Muslims, was coming to speak in Philadelphia, to "pave the way" for a Nov. 2 talk by W.D. Mohammed. "The Chicago-based statesman [W.D. Mohammed], a widely respected spiritual leader of African American Muslims, said in a phone interview he was sending his emissary to Philadelphia and other cities due to 'complaints that imams are not serving congregations well.'"
